If you loved Janice Vaine s first book The Art of Elegant Hand Embroidery Embellishment and Appliqué you will want to have her newest book Appliqué & Embroidery Fundamentals. Personalize your work with the included complete alphabet block patterns. Each letter is encircled with a wreath that features a different embroidery embellishment as well as dimensional flowers. Starting with the letter A Jan teaches the basics of hand appliqué and embroidery in a classroom-like format. Beginner stitchers as well as experienced stitchers will enjoy honing their skills with the lessons provided. You will learn how to use her Perfect Placement appliqué technique. Beautifully illustrated diagrams are used to demonstrate all aspects of appliqué from threading the needle to how to handle both inside curves and outside corners and reverse appliqué. You move right into lessons on creating the wreath including leaves, puffed circles, marking the design for embroidery, working with silk ribbon, creating Jan s Ruched Rose and last but not least pressing and trimming the blocks. Once you have mastered these techniques you are then ready to leave the classroom and work on the rest of the alphabet and wreath blocks. There are more than 300 full color photos and illustrations, 16 basic embroidery stitches and several smaller projects. Of course should you choose to work on the entire alphabet you will have a beautiful quilt when all the blocks are completed. This could be a fun project for a chapter. Each member could take an alphabet block or two. --The Applique Society Newsletter; November/December, 2012
In 2011, author Janice Vaine amazed us with the glorious projects in The Art of Elegant Hand Embroidery. The book left many an awestruck beginner hungry to make the projects, but feeling unready to dive into such complex projects. Happily, Appliqué & Embroidery Fundamentals takes first-timers through the creation of the alphabet and a gorgeous assortment of appliqué and silk ribbon embroidered stems, leaves and flowers in painstakingly detailed, step-by-step instructions specifically written with the beginner in mind. The beautifully embellished alphabet blocks are stunning just as they are, or use them in projects such as an alphabet sampler, a Christmas Joy quilt, a lavender sachet, a needle and pin keeper and more. --Crafter's Choice; Summer, 2012
